In this weeks ”Lakkaushaaste”, the challenge was to make really bold nails that would stand out from a crowd. I’m not very good in such designs, so my boyfriend suggested that I’d make a water marble design with some psychedelic colors.
I tried out some polishes but they didn’t really work well with the water so I took those who worked and went with it.
I used Summer Neon from Wild and Crazy as a base, and a red polish also from them, wet n wilds Glowstick from their Fergie collection and neon yellow from from Flormar for the water marble.
Then I stamped it with black Konad polish and a pattern from my new XL plate. It turned out quite nice in my mind. Hope you like them too! : )
I’ve been drooling over and swatching my LynB Designs polishes that I ordered a while ago and I have to say that I’m in love. Can’t wait to make nailart with these. :3
But now to my current nails. Last night I was craving for those little sweets that a pastel colored and filled with chocolate (can’t seriously remember the name), so when they were out of my reach I ended up making a nail design that resembles them.
I did a water marble design, using Sorbet So Good from Rimmel and Can’t Find My Czechbook from O.P.I. First I did what I think is the most common pattern among water marble nails, but they didn’t quite please my eye. So I tried again using water marble stripes, after finding a nice tutorial on Youtube. (Quick tip! If you don’t have a stick to use to make the patterns to the water marble desing, check your kitchen for some spaghetti. Doesn’t cost much and fulfills its purpose. :D)
I really like how they turned out, and if I would do them again, the only correction would be that I wouldn’t use white base under the water marbles. The light pink Sorbet So Good would have been a better surface to bring out the light pink color more clearly. But overall, these are really sweet nails that make me want to eat them of my hands 😀 The polishes I used behaved nicely with water so there weren’t any major problems during the process. ^^
